ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution

Dear reader, thanks for picking up this book, and welcome to the new edition of ASP.ET Website Programming Problem - Design - Solution, fully updated to ASP.NET version 2.0! The idea for this book was born in 2001, with ASP.NET 1.0, from the desire to have a book that teaches how to create real-world web sites. The first edition was published in 2002, and fortunately it was a success. I believe that this was due to the fact that most ASP.NET books on the market were (and still are) reference-type books, which describe every single control of the framework, and all their methods and properties, but the examples they provide are single-page demos showing how to use a control of a feature. However, typically these references don't show how to integrate all ASP.NET features and controls into a single site with rich functionality, which is what readers have to do at work. Designing and implementing a real-world site is very different from creating simple examples, and that's why I think a book like this is helpful for developers facing real problems in their everyday work.
